A big party will unfold the night Friday, September 9 to spread the word about mentoring in our community!

About 500 people are expected to gather in the Shops at University Square in Rochester. It’s the 2nd Annual Celebration and a one-of-kind event, organized by two mentoring organizations: Bolder Options, and Y Mentors.

Mentors help kids in many ways. “It can really make a difference in a child’s life when it comes to whether they are making decisions that lead them down the right path. There are so many ways mentoring can positively impact kids,” said Rochester Area Family Y’s CEO Steve Courts. The two mentoring groups will split the proceeds from the event. But more importantly, we hope to gain at least one hundred new mentors. The specific need is male mentors (must be age 21 or older.)
